Female members of KKY were still referred to as Brothers and male members of TBS would be called Sisters. At my campus, we had a couple of people that were male TBS sisters and female KKY brothers. No one made an issue of it then and from what I remember the reasons for an individual joining one over the other were personal and usually just meant they felt a stronger connection to one over the other even though both GLOs work in tandem for their service missions.

Yes, this. As a UMMB member, when I was there, there was only one male member of TBS and one female member active in KKY, and both clearly fit there well. We also had a lot of Sigma Kappa members (such as myself), I almost joined TBS, but definitely would have been a better fit in KKY had I had time to join another Greek org.
